Mileage For Transporting Police Dog

My husband is a police officer and he has a K-9 Police Dog as his partner. He lives at the house with us and we are reimbursed for the care of the dog while at home.

We were wondering if the mileage to and from work would be a work expense for us because we are now responsible for transporting the K9 Police Dog to and from work since he obviously cannot get there on his own (!). Normally officers are given take-home marked police cruisers for this purpose but we do not have one of these. He takes the dog with him in his personal vehicle.
thank you in advance for your help.

Mileage Rate Reimbursement

I use my personal vehicle for work and am reimbursed .37 per mile from my employer.

Can I deduct the difference of the standard federal rate of .50 or .13 per business mile?

Mileage Return?

by Adam

Mileage

Mileage

I'd like to know if the IRS will compensate me for the mileage on my car. I work as a private investigator. I use my personal vehicle for business purposes. It is used both for personal and business reasons, and it is used for business more than 50 percent of the time. I pay for gas using a company gas card. I never personally pay for gas. I pay for insurance and maintenance on the car. (I also possess receipts for every gas transaction). Considering these factors, will I receive any amount per mile for the miles driven for business purposes, say 12,000 miles? Thank you

Perdiem and Mileage

by Kathy
(Bluffton, In US)

My husband is in the plumbers and pipefitters union and usually works out of town. He has a lot of expenses he has to pay out of his own pocket. Nothing is reimbursed. He usually claims perdiem instead of keeping track of all the expenses as it usually is easier and makes more sense. I took our taxes in today to have them done by a tax accountant and she said he could claim perdiem but not mileage too. She said it's either one or the other, not both. My husband has talked to a couple of guys at work who say they can claim both. I need to know how it really is. Can he claim perdiem and mileage both together or only one of them? Thanks a lot. Kathy

Hi Kathy,

Great question.

The rules are that you can claim either actual auto expenses OR mileage, usually whichever is greater. If there are additional out of pocket expenses unrelated to the automobile, he can still claim those as well. He just can't claim a double benefit for auto deductions, it is one or the other.
